Plain and simple – our mission is to fill the world with more art. The Jack Craft Fair was created to revolutionize the way people think about “craft,” provide an alternative to the traditional art festivals in Buffalo, and in doing so, providing a platform for emerging artists to grow and connect.
We aim to revive the traditional sense of the word “craft” while also embracing all the wonderfully industrious, innovative, and modern crafts that today’s artists have to offer. By selecting exemplary artists who have mastered their craft, we strives to showcase edgy, progressive artists, and eliminate the connotations of the traditional craft fair. Now in our 4th year, we are proud to call ourselves Buffalo’s premier alternative art festival, with a diverse and uniquely curated lineup of vendors you won’t find elsewhere!
What is the fair like?
This annual event is and will always be free and open to the public- welcoming individuals of all ages and backgrounds! Our featured attraction is our vendor market, but we also offer a day long schedule of FREE drop-in workshops, collaborative public art installations, live music, food trucks & more!
